Better jumping with an Ollie

8.0.1 Ollie

Perhaps you have already made your first small jumps and jumped with both legs and the whole thing didn't feel so elegant yet. An Ollie helps you to jump off in a more controlled manner and also to jump higher and even further.

For this module you should already know.

Practicing stationary Ollie movements

In an ollie, we jump over the back leg and use the tail of the snowboard as a kind of spring. To jump an Ollie, you can imagine a kind of wave movement

In order to remain stable during the jump, we push our snowboard forward with our hips, which pushes the snowboard through and gives us energy for the Ollie. It is very important to pull the front foot up correctly.

When to do an ollie?

An ollie is actually suitable for almost every jump, even if you are jumping into boxes or want to jump into a tail press (nollie). For most people, an ollie while riding is almost easier than standing.

It's best to aim for the point you want to jump from in order to have a commitment for the Ollie at the corresponding point or try to jump over objects.

Are the Ollis already working?
